Thousand Words—
International
Typeface System

April.2020

With the trend of globalization, typography and typefaces should be adapt to the new environment as well. As a tool of communication, typefaces should achieve the goal of delivering messages internationally. But now they are facing a new challenge, above 90 percent of existing typefaces or typography systems failed to create visual harmony dealing with multilingual. They either are making assumptions on other cultures, or they are too conservative to avoid confusing the market. So to promote a new method of hybridizing different, Thousand Words, the multilingual typeface system was designed.

The system includes four styles, each of them contains 48 kanji characters and basic Latin alphabet. To achieve visual harmony, thorough historic research and printing checks were processed. The working process has been gathered and bound as a publish–ready manifesto for those who are interested in multilingual type design.

Shin G.
Is a type designer recently completing a master’s Graphic Design program at ArtCenter College of Design. In addition to designing typefaces, I do enjoy variable things in my life. I enjoy reading, writing, calligraphy, cooking, leather goods and vintage fashion. These habits help me with aesthetical and logical senses outside the world of letterforms. Working on typefaces makes designers’ thoughts organized and rational, but will not blind our vision. I have always been on adventures exploring challenging typography tasks, like interactive typography and multilingual typeface design. I am looking forward to a larger stage for my typefaces and my research and meeting insightful people from all industries.
